[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Beating the strong wind, I saw this a bold-pink ready to face the day...
I am cropping the flower like this on purpose because the petal give a flame-like look that makes this one stand out from the rest...
I am at a picnic...and too many people rushing in front of my camera lens because I am zoomed in...
waited for the wind to die...and at 1/60 this what I got.
Folks get that 300 mm lens if you don't have and you can take good images from afar and they will be this or even better quality, since I am not that good!
Now you know the rest of the story....

Fantastic David. I really like the way you've chosen to crop this. Fantastic colors, and nice sharp detail too. I'm not too sure about background or frame ... just my personal taste though.
Well done.
Have a nice weekend
